's made protecting that promise for everybody the cause of his life. as a civil rights attorney, an aide to senator ted kennedy, a member of the montgomery, maryland, county council. tom fought for a level playing field where hard work and responsibility are rewarded and working families can get ahead. and this is not the first time he's chosen to be a labor secretary either. we've got here today governor martin o'malley. and martin appointed tom as secretary of maryland's department of labor where he helped implement the country's first statewide living wage law because he understood minimum wage should be a wage you can live on. and current role as the head of the u.s. justice department and civil rights position he's fought to open pathways into the work force for everyone willing to contribute including people with disabilities, lgbt americans and immigrants. and he's helped settle some of the largest cases ever on behalf of families targeted by unfair mortgage lending. now, while he's tackled plenty of tough issues, tom's also spent a career as a consensus voter. he's worked with ce
to embrace civil rights. it's important to young voters. republican, independent and democrat. no, not one person was willing to take on the issue of gay marriage, which is, of course, the central issue they were implying is driving some young, a lot of younger voters in this country. so they have massive problems. the other problem is that when you look at this report, what they're trying to do, and jonathan martin in "politico" wrote a nice piece about this today. they're suggesting structural changes that will make it much harder for insurgent candidates like the rand pauls or the rick santorums to challenge for the nomination by shortening the process by condensing, by aggregating primaries so that you have to cover a lot more territory. by eliminating caucuses and conventions as a means of nominating candidates by a state. all of those things would give establishment candidates a much better chance to win the nomination and may give the republican party a better chance to win a national election. but they're courting a rebellion among their own troops and you saw some of that at cpac
equality. and the marriage question, marriage equality, is a civil rights issue. and i think it has dawned on certain corners of the republican party they can no longer hold on to antiquated and perhaps bigoted views. but it is going to be tough, lawrence, as much as there is progress, there is a base that is very, very violently resisting entering into the modern era as far as this is concerned. >> and ari melber, of course what john boehner and lindsay graham and these guys who say i believe in marriage of one man and one woman, what they, of course, mean is they believe in a marriage of one man and as many women as he wants in sequence and one woman and as many men as she wants in sequence throughout her life, since, of course, they have absolutely no problem with divorce, which really upsets the old one man, one woman model. >> yeah. if you look at the demography of it, it has always been very weird that a country like the united states, which has high church attendance, but very low, you know, us is tans rates for marriage, has this sort of obsession. but i think what saxby may be try
to overturn prop 8 is that this is like civil rights. that this is the civil rights movement moved to the gay and lesbian community. why is that not the case? >> well, we understand historically that keeping the races apart is wrong. what marriage is about is bringing together the two opposite halves of humanity for a deep social good. that's why as president obama himself said, there are people of good will on both sides of this issue. what we need the supreme court to do is not try to short circuit this debate. we need to keep the debate alive. americans on both sides of this issue are deeply invested in this debate. we don't need a 50-state solution presented by the supreme court. the court is going to decide whether it's going to impose a redefinition of marriage among all americans or whether we're going to be allowed to continue to work on this together state by state. >> so not a roe v. wade decision is what's being argumented, don't make a decision that then sets the stage arguing four years to come. >> look, candy, this case -- the case before the united states supreme court both in
